Important installation information

The Avtek CMS application, used to manage Avtek DS monitors, requires steps to be taken for its activation and proper operation. The key element is the activation of the license, which must be done by contacting the device supplier. It should be noted that the license is assigned to a specific computer, which forces the careful selection of the device on which the application will be installed.

In a situation where you are not sure on which device you want to install Avtek CMS software, there is an option to generate a term demo license. This temporary license allows you to test the application's performance and evaluate the CMS's usability before making a final decision on the target device on which the software will be installed. This is a useful solution for users who want to ensure that the device they choose will be suitable for full use of the CMS functionality.

In addition, in the process of activating a full license, it is necessary to provide information about the number of monitors to be supported by the device. Without this key information, the license cannot be properly issued.

Importantly, Avtek DS monitors are designed to be connected to only one server at a time. Therefore, the Avtek CMS application should be installed on one selected device. Other computers can connect to this application as long as they are on the same network and provided that the computer with the application installed is turned on and connected to the same network.

For detailed information on the operation and configuration of Avtek CMS, please refer to the manual included with the application.
